Bubble art painting is one of our favorite activities. We’ve also tried bottle bubble art on a huge canvas. With fall upon us, we thought it’s be a great twist to make these gorgeous Watercolor Bubble Art Trees.

This is a simple art activity you can set up with the kids! All you need are some liquid watercolors, straws and soap. Kids will love blowing colorful bubbles and first creating their painted leaves and foliage.

Then we created “Y trees” which we first saw on’ colorful Instagram feed featuring her beautiful rainbow trees.

What I love are the various colors and soft blended hues you can create on your trees!  Read more below on how to make this beautiful fall tree art.

Step 1. Add liquid watercolor to your bowl and a squirt or two of dish soap.

Step 2. Swirl the watercolors and soap with your straw slightly then make bubbles. Make sure to BLOW OUT and not IN. Younger kids should be supervised and/or not allowed to do this part if they are not able to blow out.

Step 3. Once you’ve made your colored bubbles, gently place your paper over the bubbles and remove. You should see a transference of bubbles to paper.

The effect is marbled and blotted and kind of cool.

Step 4. Repeat with more watercolors, and using the same process. Adding a squirt or two of dish soap and blowing bubbles out.

Step 5. We made concentric circles with our bubble blow art to resemble a tree and then filled in the sides with more bubbles.

Step 6. Once you’re satisfied with your colors, draw a “Y” tree. This is a common practice in drawing trees and great for kids to follow. Just keep making branches in the letter formation of the letter Y.

Step 7. Fill in and color your tree with  your black marker.

And voila you have a pretty fall tree art to hang and admire!
